Saturday Seeds - Playing in the toy sprinkler.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  What’s going on in your neck of the woods?  We’re just trying to stay cool with some fun sprinkler action.  🙂

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you saw that I was in Miami last weekend for a blogging conference.  It was fun, but I sure do wish I would’ve taken at least one step on the beach!  haha!  More on that tomorrow.

Bath time with the kiddos!

I don’t think I slept more than 8 hours the entire weekend, so when I arrived home on Sunday afternoon, I basically was a zombie trying to take care of the kids and get back into normal routine.  That didn’t work out very well.  The next day I slept in way too late.  Thankfully Ben has such a flexible schedule that he was able to let me catch up on my zzzzzz’s.  But, seriously, how could I not want to be awake and take care of these cute faces??

Livingston Farmers Market in MississippiThursday, we spent our first visit of the year to the charming Livingston Farmers Market.

Livingston Farmers Market in MississippiWe love this market because it’s small, but fun for the kids, too.  It has a free water slide!

Livingston Farmers Market - Meringue Macarons @laurenbowieMy favorite booth at the market this week was this sweet gal’s Macaron stand.  Her name is Lauren Bowie and her business is Meringue (A Macaron Kitchen).  Right now she does pre-orders and market stands only, but I’m seriously hoping she opens a store in the area.  We sampled one of her peanut butter flavors and uh-huh YUM!   Lauren, we’ll be regulars when you open your bakery!  😉

Tony's Tamales at Livingston Farmers MarketWe sampled Tony’s Tamales finally for the first time.  I’ve heard so much about them..raving reviews.  They definitely lived up to the hype and I’ll be visiting their drive-thru restaurant in Ridgeland very soon.

LurnyD's Grille Food Truck - Jackson, MSFor dinner, we opted for The Goober burger from LurnyD’s Grille, a local food truck.  I’ve been wanting to try it ever since my friend, Lisa, wrote about it.

By the way, have I mentioned that I just started a new gig writing for a local online food magazine?  Check out my first article and leave me some love.  😉

Loving Lately:
Here I will share with you my favorite things of late, along with other snippets that have caught my eye from some of my favorite blogs and websites.

Tieks Ballet Flats Review

Today’s “Loving Lately”, is all about my new pair of Tieks.  Have you seen the hype of these shoes?  They are basically the most comfortable ballet flats ever!

Tieks Ballet Flats Review

I chose this multi-colored Azure Snake style because the marble of colors matches basically everything in my wardrobe.

Tieks Ballet Flats Review

I’m a huge fan of Toms shoes, too (what I call “Moms” shoes), but these flats actually dress up a casual outfit when I need it.  I’m super impressed with these shoes and hope that later I can save up to buy a solid color pair.

Speaking of color, you should check out all of the amazing colors they offer!  Seriously, you can find your favorite shade, no problem!

Tieks Ballet Flats Review

The packaging is marvelous!  So cute and girly!

And, check out how they fold right up so they take up hardly any room when traveling.

I also love that you can try them and send them back if they just aren’t your thing…and they take care of the shipping!

  1. I had the pleasure of sitting at a table with your husband at the seminary graduation dinner last weekend! I told him that I read your blog. 🙂

    • Nikki Gladd says:

      Ha! I would’ve been right there with you if it wasn’t for the conference! Congratulations on your husband’s graduation!

  2. Your kids are so cute and I love that farmers market!
    I’ve wanted Tieks but just can’t justify spending that much on shoes! Are they worth the price do you think?

    • Nikki Gladd says:

      Kristen – I’ve heard mixed reviews, but more people saying that they love them and worth the price. I think the solid colors are definitely more reasonable, but it is nice that the snake skin ones I have go with just about everything I own because of the multi-colors. So, I look at it as like 5 pairs in one. haha! I probably will buy a solid color later this year…maybe tan for the fall. 🙂

  3. I want a pair of these shoes so bad. They are top on my list for my upcoming birthday!!

  4. Nikki,
    I love reading about all your adventures!
    So happy for you.
